Parties to these agreements should be aware that the provisions of the law are contrary to the terms of an administrative arrangement. Such an application is not accepted if an agreement violates the law or attempts to unite under the law. On the transaction side, for example, hotel and restaurant operators often unknowingly violate the state`s licensing provisions by not receiving the corresponding intermediate licences for operation after closure (i.e. before the seller`s spirits licence is officially transferred or a new licence is granted to the buyer). For example, in Florida, it has become a standard practice for hotel buyers and sellers to enter into an Interim Beverage Service Management Agreement in which the seller authorizes the buyer to use the seller`s liquor license in the hotel`s operation after closing, until the buyer can transfer the license or obtain his own license. It is not only important to discuss alcoholic beverages specializing in transaction and approval, but specialized alcoholic beverage advice can be an invaluable resource during closing, transitioning a transaction phase as well as in day-to-day operation. For example, specialized consultants can be invaluable in terms of compliance and advise on issues such as: If I run out of vodka, can I send someone to buy more in the spirits store on the street? Can I make an excess inventory outside of operation? Can I build an outdoor bar by the pool? Will a change in management company affect the licensing of spirits? And of course, an alcoholic beverage consultant is essential if you are fighting legal action against a state`s liquor control authority for alleged violation of the Liquor Act or if you are fighting another part of a failed transaction because it is unable to transfer a liquor licence. Just as important as identifying contractual problems is knowing where to look for due diligence problems. Alcoholic beverages are regulated at several levels of government and it is important to understand, in the treatment of alcoholic beverages, the impact of regulation on licensing at all levels of power. For example, in many states, the state regulates qualifications to hold a liquor licence, but each municipality has unique shingle requirements that govern the placement of liquor licenses. If these unique and ever-changing codes are not detected, even in smaller municipalities, this can be devastating for a customer.
The awareness of these subtleties in the code, such as minimal separation. B, inappropriate concentration restrictions, the number of hotel rooms or requirements per square metre, is essential to ensure that a customer is properly advised and prevented from making costly decisions that could otherwise be avoided.
